Thumbs up Got my final job offer!

Man has it been a long road.

Yesterday I had my interview with the Deputy Chief of Police and then signed my final job offer. I start the academy on July 8th.

I'm really looking forward to the next five to six months of shenanigans in the academy.

Finally realizing your life goal after years of preparation feels pretty good

Son, you better snap out of it. WE ARE NOT PLAYING A GAME HERE. What you learn in the academy will get you thru the next 25 years. It is not trivial unless you plan on being a slacker in civil service.

You might as well know I have been doing this since 1978 and I have seen lot of failures. The day you leave your "A" game at home is the day you will need it.

Otherwise do us proud

+1 how true is that. Took monthes, maybe years to get selected and then one moment of bad judgement get fired or end up in jail or prison.

You have no idea. Everyone has been telling me how stressful it was going to be, but it's much different going through it. After I got my final handshake my friends asked me if I was excited. I was excited, but more relieved.

Alright, but I'll have to confiscate all of your guns for my personal collection in return

I appreciate the sentiment, I really do, but understand that just because I'm a lighthearted person with a sense of humor does not mean that I don't take things seriously. I've busted my butt for the past five years for this opportunity. I'm not doing it for myself, I'm doing it for the community because that's my passion. I know how serious this is and what level I need to be at. But nothing will ever stop me from having a good time and joking along the way.

I've watched a lot of your posts and believe me when I say that your advice is always welcome.

One of the things that got me to the end of my career (that my dad taught me as a young man) was forcing myself to look into the mirror every day. Some days were better than others but you have to know the guy looking back at you has done his best every single day.
